Domestic Violence Homicide Reports and Homicide Prevention

Since 2000, End Domestic Abuse Wisconsin (WCADV) has been researching, documenting and publishing an annual report detailing domestic violence-related homicides in Wisconsin.  In doing so, our intent is to honor the victims and survivors of domestic violence homicide. We also want to support Wisconsin communities to create opportunities for intervention and prevention of homicide.  We hope to expand the understanding of the dynamics of domestic violence among Coordinated Community Response (CCR) Teams, Elder Abuse Interdisciplinary Teams, and other critical systems where those living with domestic violence, whether as the primary target of the violence or the perpetrator, might seek help, assistance, support and opportunities to change.  Through our annual reporting, we hope to inspire community members to get involved in efforts to prevent domestic violence.

Continuing the work launched in 2000 with publication of the first Wisconsin Domestic Violence Homicide Report, this edition details domestic violence-related homicides in the calendar year 2009. This brief accounting in no way represents the victims’ full lives. Within the limitations of readily available public information, we have endeavored to construct as accurate a description as possible of key events and circumstances related to each homicide.

2008 Wisconsin Domestic Violence Homicide Report

This edition details domestic violence-related homicides in the calendar year 2008. This brief accounting in no way represents the victims’ full lives. That would require a far more detailed inquiry, in-depth study of official case records, and conversations with family and friends left behind. Within the limitations of readily available public information we have endeavored to construct as accurate a description as possible of key events and circumstances related to each homicide.
